Apart from a couple of paintings by Gerhard Richter, this gallery is full of trash. However, the artworks are so null of any talent or meaning, you can ignore them and concentrate on the beauty of the building, which is worth five euros of anyone's money. The quality of the materials and the finish is outstanding.

I enjoyed the structure itself, high ceilings, lots of glass, concrete, interesting angles and stairways. However, the beautiful building overshadowed the collection, which seemed very sparse. The special exhibition about faces and masks was interesting, but for me most of the pieces could not compete with the space.

In addition to the very contemporary displays of modern art (you really have to like contemporary conceptual art!), the building is simply amazing. It is also juxtaposed next to some 16th century buildings, and viewing the contrast is striking.

This museum is a must have seen. there are always great exhibitions. Go there and see. A great place for photographers. the mirroring outside wall gives great pictures at the blue hour time.

Though its full name includes the words Kunst (Art) and Design, there is not much of either. Like the Bilbao Guggenheim, this is all building, and hardly any art. It looks massive from the outside, but inside there are only a very few items on permanent display - a few examples of technology like TVs and typewriters, a few pieces... More

I was given a free ticket into this from the hotel I was staying at in Nuremberg. I was glad I took the time to visit the Museum. It certainly challenges your views on art, but only in a good away. The building itself is an interesting structure, especially as it is within the old walls of the city. Full... More

This modern gallery is set amongst the old walls of Nuremberg and was a stand out in my visit. The buildings architecture is a visit in itself. Full of great contemporary art. Also free entry for art/design students alike.

Nice to have such museum but weak collection for a city as Nürnberg. I like more the bookshop then the gallery. Huge building for a little art. But need to see anyway for Gerhard Richter.

This museum will not only fascinate you with its art but also with its architecture. There was quite some controversy when this ultra-modern building was incorporated into what is essentially Nuremberg's "old town", but the architecture and interior design have a way of drawing one in. When we visited, there was a special exhibition by ceramic artist Patricia Urquiola that... More

Eclectic and welcoming, this museum did impress. The building architecture is stunning. The works on display during our visit was unique and at times quite inspiring. The Sunday entrance of only 1 euro was very nice. The museum is small, so you can make it through in a couple of hours and its gift shop and book store is a... More
